HostApplication in Access add-in

I'm unable to retrieve the HostApplication in an Access add-in. Following the Outlook examples, I've used

    Public Function AccessHost() As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Access.Application
        AccessHost = Me.HostApplication
    End Function


But Me.HostApplication returns Nothing. Also, I'm not entirely sure where to instantiate my add-in; at this point, I'm doing it in a form, but should it be more globally located?

Thanks,

g.

Hi Graham.

You can download a simple example using the following link:
http://www.add-in-express.com/projects/accessexample_vb.zip

Please test it on your PC. The PIAs for Office 2003 must be installed.

Thanks; that should probably help.

Could I respectfully suggest that you post links to all your sample projects somewhere on your Web site? The link you just gave is not at http://www.add-in-express.com/free-addins/index.php, nor could I find it by searching the forums for "Access."

I assume there are other sample projects not listed on that page, too, because I've seen you post some of them here.

Thanks.

Hi Graham.

You are right. We should publish all our examples on one page. We will necessarily do this soon.
